Wildcat gymnasts score key league victory
Mount Si’s gymnastics team traveled Saturday to Mercer Island, and while their overall scores were slightly down from their efforts in their meet December 8, the Wildcats still put together a solid performance to score a very important road Kingco victory.
The Wildcats defeated the Islanders 155.9-147.6 in the meet at Mercer Island High School. Solid performances were seen on the floor by both Hannah Richmond and Jenn Rogers. Rogers scored a strong 9.2, while Richmond followed it up with an equally solid 9.0.
Hailey Johnson led the way on the vault for Mount Si with an 8.7, and several others, including Rogers, Richmond and Mackenzie Brown, all scored better than eight on that event. Richmond’s 7.4 was tops for the Wildcats on bars, while Rogers delivered a solid 8.25 on beam. Rogers finished with a 32.75 in the all around competition to lead Mount Si, and Carissa Castagno also delivered a strong all-around effort, scoring 31.15, finishing in the top ten in all four events along with Rogers. Castagno’s best score was on floor, with an 8.65.
Mount Si is now off until after the holiday break, but will have a few practices between now and when they return to class to keep themselves in shape for the second half of the schedule.
